Caring for your health and finances
We’ve implemented several measures to provide members healthy physical environments when they visit our locations. Additionally, we’ve built financial programs and solutions to help members manage their finances through unexpected challenges.
First Tech Financial Care
For those experiencing financial hardship, First Tech offers an Emergency Assistance Program and helped our business members apply for the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program loan. We participated in the second round of PPP loans for small businesses and while the SBA no longer allows us to submit PPP loans, we’re still helping members understand and apply for PPP loan forgiveness.
Our branches will remain open where possible, and we will continue to ensure that all of our public areas follow the recommendations from the CDC and guidelines from state and local health authorities. As we adjust to current conditions some branches may be impacted and those will be listed here. As of July 1, 2020, we are requiring members to wear a mask at our locations.
With so much uncertainty in the world during this difficult time, we want to reassure you that your safety is, and has always been our top priority. With guidance from our federal and state officials, we have made a number of changes to our locations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the safety of both you and our teammates. At First Tech, we invest in you. We will continue to provide banking solutions that fit your needs wherever you are. Click the video below to learn more.

Related Scams and Fraud You're probably doing a lot of clicking, scrolling and swiping to stay updated about the situation surrounding coronavirus and COVID-19. As you check emails and browse social, please remember to keep your financial and personal information secure. That means being extra careful about opening links, attachments, or requests for information from anyone claiming to represent First Tech--or agencies like the World Health Organization or Center for Disease Control. There are scammers trying to take advantage of this situation to gain access to your data or separate you from your money. Read more about COVID-19 related scams and the response from the Federal Trade Commission. In challenging economic times, we may look for extra sources of income. Be very careful about jobs that claim to pay you, but require you send overage back to them. Any time you receive a check from someone you don’t know well, be wary. This includes the government’s Economic Impact Payment that many of us are waiting for. To ensure the check or prepaid card you receive is the real deal visit the Treasury’s check verification resource. First Tech will never call, message or email you to request any of your personal information. Be careful with any urgent messages that want you to follow a link or provide your personal information, and always double check the source before sharing your information. For more ways to keep your data safe, check out our Fraud Center.
Additional Precautions We encourage our members to follow these protective measures provided by the CDC on prevention of COVID-19.
First Tech is continuing to monitor this situation closely, and we will keep you informed of any developments.
